    May I ask those logs file under /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ are for what purpose?

    Can I remove those logs under it? Will it cause any side effect?

    These are your domain access_log's. They can be extremely beneficial when troubleshooting various issues such as attacks, where traffic is coming from, identifying how worms get into your system, etc. They are also used (AFAIK) for webstat applications such as webalizer, awstats, analog.

    Removing them would probably be bad. Clearing them out with a command such as cat /dev/null > /usr/local/apache/domlogs/<filename> would be ok. Be VERY careful with this command, you can kick your systems butt with it if you type it wrong.
